I ran a slightly tweaked version of the Chaos Omar build i have in the deckbuilding forums.
Round1 vs Fire Astrid played by Josh, who is fairly new to the game.
Usually try to go a little easy on newcomers, but the deck had been adjusted and this was round1 with the store championship on the line and everyone knows astrid can easily OSK on reversal so i didnt want to get too sloppy game 1. I took game 1 fairly easily.
Game 2 i got stupid hand...and well...stupid hand is stupid. He went first and got down 2 foundations and Reavers Axe. I go 2nd and drew a stupid hand of 1st rite, 2nd rite, 1st rite, 2nd rite, For the money, some random foundation. I go first rite, stun2, he blocks with a +2L but checks a 4 and gets hit for 3. I drop a 2nd rite at a 4 and hit him for another 3. Then i drop for the money and another foundation. He plays a few more foundations his turn 2 and i drew into a 3rd rite. First rite, 2nd rite, 3rd rite, multiple 2, GG.
Round 2 vs Hilde
Hilde was being played buy a player who used to play but hasn't for some time. The deck was built to go attack > midnight launcher > dual wielding and i kept blocking the first attack into a gut drill, giving it an extra stun off of Maniacal laughter, which also gave me a 2nd momentum to hit him with a multiplied 3rd rite. Low vitality is tough in this format right now...2-0.
Round 3 vs Vapergecko Lu-chen
Game 1 i ate a few too many reversals too many. Eventually ended up overcommitted and ate a wrath of heaven to the face. Game 2 i sided in my Devil Within's and Demon Slayers. Game 2 was closer but he took me. Lu chen went 3-0 as swiss champ, but no one on here saw that coming!
We only had 8 so we cut to top 4.
Round 1 vs Siegfried
Siegfried was played by a pretty casual player but he did really well. Base hold + Rising hilt + siegfried = face smash. Unfortunately i had all the blocks when i needed them and his deck didn't drop enough foundations to be able to stand up to my aggro after his was unsuccessful. Took him 2-0.
Finals vs Lu Chen
Ok everyone knew this was coming. He had already beat me once, but now i was a little more versed in what to stop in his deck. I got a controller of souls down early game 1 and it allowed me to slow down his speed pumps enough to let me block + gut drill when he attacked. I held him out until i could fuel enough momentum with maniacal laughters and did a few multipled spinning demons to eventually take a grueling game 1.
I felt in pretty good shape since game 1 was a lot more difficult for me without my Devil's Withins. Also demon slayer could stop a speed pump or the lu chen e on robes if needed. This time though i sided differently and removed my 2nd rites and zaibatsu leaders. This left me with more damaging attacks, as with all the card pool shennanigans going on i usually could only throw 1 attack a turn, unless it was a kill turn...in which case if i fell short i was dead. I built up Need to Destroys and Maniacal Laughters and built up a little momentum. Got him to ~20 early and finally went for it with a multiple 1 spinning demon into a multiple 2 spinning demon. Omars dmg pump was able to allow me to squeeze thru JUST enough damage and knock the old man on his ass.
We also had a fire cassie that did 12-lethal dmg turn 1 lol, but i guess just fell short. Rockstar also ran a Jin and all day he had a hand full of foundations and a discard pile full of attacks...Happens.
Lu chen was really difficult to work around. Lots of cards going from my staging area to my cardpool (then coming down commited to boot) and lots of fast speed reversals. And 10speed wrath of heavens are no joke.
